For those who know me, know that I love coffee and no matter what time of day, there is always coffee brewing in my home.
I have been wanting to make a “coffeehouse” sign and I have finally done it!
I used scraps of lumber and chair rail trim that I had on hand. I stained it walnut and then painted it all white.
My first thought was to leave it all white and stencil black lettering but I changed my mind. I wanted a little more color so that the top trim would stand out. I ended up painting the bottom red.
Using my Cricut, I made a COFFEEHOUSE stencil. Immediately after I stenciled, I sanded and lightly rubbed the walnut stain over it with a cloth.
What do you think….should I have gone with my first thought and left it white with black lettering or would you leave it as is?
Did you know that the definition of a coffeehouse is a place where coffee and other refreshments are served and people gather for conversation and entertainment. Well, I think this coffeehouse sign best describes my home.
